Fotoxx is a free open source Linux program for image editing and collection management. The goal is to meet the needs of serious photographers while remaining fast and easy to use.
Navigate a large image collection using a thumbnail browser, click on an image to view or edit. A rich set of edit and retouch functions is available (examples below). Import RAW files and edit with deep color. Save revised images as JPEG, PNG (8/16 bits), or TIFF (8/16).
Select an object or area within an image (freehand outline, follow edges, select matching tones...), apply edit functions, copy and paste, resize, blend, warp, etc. without using layers. Edit functions have fast feedback using the full image.
Edit image metadata (tags, geotags, dates, ratings, captions...). Search images using metadata and folder/file names or partial names. Click on a marked map location to see all photos from that location. Batch functions are available to rename, add/revise metadata, copy/move, resize, convert format.
Fotoxx uses your image files wherever they are and maintains a separate index for fast searching. Fotoxx is standards compliant and can be used with other photo programs (no lock-in). Fotoxx is easy to use but unconventional, so please read the user manual (at least the first few pages) before jumping in.
